Leyton Orient fell to their eighth defeat at home as the O’s were beaten 2-1 by Blackpool on Saturday.

Goals from Tom Aldred and Jamille Matt were enough to seal the victory for the Tangerines.

Despite another defeat for Orient, the O’s had very good spells during the match. In particular, the game saw a great performance from midfielder Michael Collins.

Although Collins was by far the most positive outlet for Orient, Manager Alberto Cavasin brought the Irishman off in the 66th minute.

Following the match, Cavasin insisted that this was the right thing to do, despite the negative reaction he received from the four-thousand strong crowd, as he wanted to balance the team.

‘More offensive’
He told the club website, “I wanting to play more offensive, the ones I could have taken out was either Nigel Atangana or Collins.

The ex-Fiorentina boss was keen to draw on the positives despite Orient suffering a ninth league defeat of the season.

“In this moment there are two things that are positive and the first is that the next game is on Tuesday against Exeter City,” said Cavasin.

“This is what the lads said in the changing room and the other is that we ended the match in a positive way.”

Leyton Orient are back in action against Exeter this Tuesday night at Brisbane Road.
